Style Perspectives: Summer Dress

Hello friends and happy June! I feel like with the new month, we can unofficially call it summer around these parts. By far my favorite clothing item in summer is a dress. Extra points if it is a striped swing dress. A striped swing dress is the perfect blank canvas without being, well, blank. For this outfit, I went simple with a statement necklace. But you could easily add a light scarf, an outer later like a blazer or cardigan, or even a simple necklace.

Can we talk about this necklace quick? I’ve had my eye on Beaded by W for awhile now and I am in love. If you have a chance, go check out the owner’s back story, it is pretty neat! I scooped this up during a sale and I’m so glad I did. How could I go wrong with turquoise beads and a neon pink tassel?

    Swing dresses now make me think of you automatically. Also, I can totally picture you reading a book on a blanket, under a tree in a swing dress. Love that necklace too.

    I love the striped dress and statement necklace. Jealous you are in summer mode now. We are just barely starting to warm up!

    Great necklace (and dress) but that necklace makes me want to buy all of them on that site. Damn it! LOL

    That dress is really cute! I’ve never heard of a swing dress before this!

    First, let me say that tassel necklace caught my eye immediately. When I looked closer, I also loved the way you wore it, long and like a choker, all at one time. But that pop of pink is fantastic. Your dress is breezy and perfect for summer days.

    Great dress, and I love how you styled it with that necklace. Super cute! I really love the cut and movement in the dress. Your puppy is adorable.
